Finally, don’t abuse the poor comma. It hasn’t done anything to you. Well, it may have caused you some stress from time to time, but you should not abuse it. You should definitely not use a comma in the following instances:
- To separate a subject from a verb.
- Between two verbs or verb phrases in a compound predicate.
- Between two nouns or noun phrases in a compound subject.
- To set off a dependent clauses at the end of a sentence, except in cases of strong contrast.
